AFAIK that's not possible. Sorry.

gvSIG 1.12 builds the Windows launcher (gvsig-desktop.exe) using
launch4j [1] as it's being done in gvSIG 2.0. The
gvsig-desktop.l4j.ini allows pass arguments to the jre at runtime but
nothing more.

You should make your own gvsig-desktop.exe file to make what you want
but it's easy.

1.- Download launch4j
2.- Hack this file
(see how it's done in the gvsig-desktop of the portable version here [2]

3.- Execute launch4j with your hacked configuration file.
4.- Replace your gvsig executable with yours

The other option is that you create a .bat file similar to this:

or similar to the gvSIG.sh file distributed with the linux version
